Trivia

Although it was not released until quite late in 1963, the film was the biggest box-office success of the year in Britain - no small achievement in the year of such hit films as Tom Jones (1963), The Great Escape (1963) and The Birds (1963), all of which were released in the summer. Not only that, but in the 82 days between its premiere in London and the end of 1963, it had become the most lucrative film of any kind ever to be released in British cinemas. One industry analyst described the phenomenon of its popularity as "akin to Beatlemania" - a remark which must have made United Artists very happy as they were about to make the first The Beatles movie, A Hard Day's Night (1964).

Better than Fleming's Novel!
7 December 1998 | by (Iowa City, IA) – See all my reviews

Hard to believe, but the movie is actually an improvement on Fleming's novel. Rather than have the Lektor operation be a simple Russian scheme to discredit Bond as Fleming did, SPECTRE takes a hand here in their first on-screen appearance as an organization. The plot is improved considerably because of this. The movie thrives on its supporting actors and Sheybal. Connery is somewhat outshone by these greater lights, but gives a credible performance. From Russia... is a different pace of movie: no one here is intent on wiping out the world's population, or destroying the gold supply, or stealing submarines. Basically, it's a quiet little plot focusing on an elaborate "sting" operation. Until the end, the pace is kind of slow, and might lose more "modern" audiences, particularly those used to incredible stunt sequences every 20 minutes.
